    That's one of my biggest complaints about the 558- it is too complex unless used every day and every way. Am waiting for my Pentax Digital, which does one thing, the one I want. I guess it's not unlike the difference between the controls on a Leica and those on one of the newer super DSLRs.

    First there were SLRs.

    Then there were D-SLRs.

    Not there are "Super D-SLRs"!

    I am holding off until they are "Super-Dooper D-SLRs", personally!

    And when THEIR useful life ends, they can be converted into Super-Dooper Pooper-Scoopers by removing the lens and sensor

    modern digital light meters are like this I have two of them a Sekonic and a Gossen, I'm seventy two years old and have no problem with them, and can't understand why much younger people than I think them "too complex", it ain't rocket science all do is get as near as you can to the reading so if in shutter priority mode the meter reads f8.4 or f8.6 if your lens has half stop click stops set it between f8 and f5.6 (f6.3) or if it reads f8.9 set the lens at f5.6, you can see on the analogue readout on the bottom of the display which is the closest full or half stop to the digital readout. I find these digital meters very accurate and much quicker and easier to use that the Weston Master or Gossen Lunapro S.B.C that I also have and have put in semi-retirement.
